L.A. COMPLEX, THE (The CW) - Martin Gero is looking to reboot his Canadian drama for the netlet, which "will revolve around a new crop of tenants who move into the Luxe hotel in the heart of Hollywood - a ragtag commune of twentysomethings all hustling to make it as actors, dancers, producers or comedians." Gero and Brendan Gall will pen the script for said incarnation via the former's Warner Bros. TV-based Quinn's House banner. The CW previously carried the show's two-season run in the summer of 2012.

STAR WARS: THE MANDALORIAN (A.K.A. UNTITLED STAR WARS LIVE-ACTION PROJECT) (Disney OTT) - Jon Favreau revealed on social media the concept behind the upcoming "Star Wars" TV series: "After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe.
